Browning of Black Fur
« on: December 03, 2006, 03:26:18 am »
Hi All,

Rocky's fur seems to be turning brownish.  You really notice it when he is outside.  Has anyone else noticed this in their black dane?  A friend of mine said she sort of remembered reading that it could be a deficiency of some sort.  Any ideas?

i was told if they spend a lot of time outside, it's called sun bleaching, and just from exposure to the sun.
